Photographer’s note: Upon arriving at our hotel in Santiago, Anne Petermann and I hooked up with Biofuelwatch’s Gary Hughes. We headed toward the mass action up the street. Even though thousand of people have been detained, over twenty killed and over 200 people with serious injuries to their eyes, yesterday afternoon was energizing to say the least.
Streets were clogged with protesters. In areas of green space people rested, played music, sang and others formed a circle dance.
This is a revolution. Grim but with a sense of humor and high spirits. Emma Golman came to my mind with her famous comment, “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be in your revolution.”
And this is a revolution without single leaders.
